Lucas Bischoflberger demonstrates how easy it is to start using Telestream Cloud.
What is LiveSync?
We have just added a new, easier way to integrate with Telestream Cloud. With LiveSync all you need to do is specify additional AWS S3 source bucket for new or existing factory and we take care of the rest. Anytime you add a new file to it we will encode it automatically to all output profiles assigned to the factory.
LiveSync allows you to batch process videos without having to write any code or make API requests. It also comes with an option to back-synchronize files you might already have in your source bucket. Once you set up a factory and define output parameters exactly as you need them, with one click you can encode all previously existing files in source bucket. Once the files are encoded they will be delivered to your selected storage. We strongly recommend you make sure your output is exactly as you need it before enabling back synchronization.
It’s up to you to decide when to use LiveSync – either when creating a new factory or changing factory settings at any time.
It’s currently available on AWS only but we’re working on Google Cloud Storage implementation as well.
How to get started?
When creating a factory, select S3 as your storage option and identify your S3 source bucket. It can’t be the same bucket as the output bucket and has to use the same credentials to access it. Alternatively, you can turn on LiveSync in Factory Settings for any factory you’ve already created.
We will need your Access Key and Secret Key only once a to let Telestream Cloud user access the S3 bucket. We don’t store the keys. Once configured, we will use AWS events to monitor the bucket, ingest and encode any new media files placed in it. The easiest integration ever.
